In terms of an example of personal aesthetic, I don't really have a table or anything to use as an altar, so instead I use an old guitar amp (as its a raised surface), a hand-drawn baphomet in red, some standard candles (one black one white), crystal glass as a chalice, and a katana as my ceremonial sword. Not only are all of these items easily accessible to me, but I feel like I have a connection to the items also which serves me personally to heighten the emotional response and experience of the ritual. Everyone will have thier own personal take on their setup for rituals.

Unlock and open the doors,
(Be the Healer or the Faker),
The Keys are in your hands,
(Realize you are your own sole creator),
Of your own Master Plan!
